"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"The nineteenth century is interesting for many reasons, but one for sure is that it was a moment of pre-modernity- a moment when time was thought of in a very different way. The relationship people thought they had with the period in which they were living was very different from the one we have today. The difference is in the way we see each period in relation to the present, past, and future."
- Pierre Huyghe
